For the last 24 or so hours, buzz about the Cavaliers reaching out to former Heat players Mike Miller and Ray Allen has been moving around the internet. According to Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio, Miller could be close to signing:

Miller -- who was considered to be close to retirement three years ago due to back, knee, and shoulder ailments -- played in all 82 games for the Memphis Grizzlies last season. He is 34 years old. He averaged 7 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game last season. More importantly, he shot 46% from three.

Standing 6'8" tall, Miller possesses a lot of the qualities that David Blatt looks for. He is an incredibly smart player, a good passer, and an elite shooter.
